Vienna is one of the cities being considered as the venue for a possible summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Saturday.

Sebastian Mallaby, a senior fellow with the Council on Foreign Relations, described the relationships between the United States and the rest of the G7 as at a "new level of crisis", saying that it was not just about trade but "a general USA attitude toward the system".

"We have a world to run", Trump helpfully went on to explain. The two leaders then attended an ice hockey between the youth teams of Russian Federation and China. "Putin is probably going "I wish Hillary won".

Peskov said the possibility of a Vienna summit was also raised this week during talks in the city between Putin and Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, who has sought to present his country as a bridge between Russian Federation and the West. He's punishing our allies, he's not showing them very much respect, showing up at this meeting late.

"As for Russia's return to the G7, G8 - we never left it", he said. "Please, we would be happy to see everyone in Moscow".

"China is willing to work with Russian Federation and other countries to preserve the JCPOA", Xi said.

President Donald Trump on Friday called for Russian Federation to be invited back to the G7, telling reporters the country should be at this weekend's meeting of major world leaders. I can reiterate that in our last telephone conversation he expressed his concern about the threat of a new round of the arms race.

"As far as I know, the USA president has stated that the United States is considering the possibility of additional regulation of deliveries of the automotive vehicles to the U.S. market".

'It's time to stop that chatter and deal with real issues'.

Authorities cleared an entire oceanside swathe of the city - moving aside shopkeepers and day-trippers to make way for Xi, Putin and Rouhani.

Experts said the award was a clear sign that both countries were growing closer amid increasing pressure from the US.

Putin also criticized Trump's decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal, saying the withdrawal could "destabilize the situation" in the Middle East.
